    Duuude the mac n cheese at Homestead Steak party at Caesar’s is soo good!

    I felt bad cuz I got foie gra and swapped it out because it was SO rich. They honored my request and were so kind - the guy that brings you your food and presents it? He came back and apologized to me. Dude it wasn’t you guys, it was me!

    I think the party next to me (oysters, drinks flowing, clearly with money, and obnoxious but funny at the same time?) were talking shit about me. They watched me mix my baked cheese into my Mac n cheese (to add texture you fucks!) and - yup they’re totally talking shit. Commentary goes past me to people outside the bar too. But they know the staff here so they must work nearby or come here all the time. W t f fools. W t f. Just be fucking nice to people! It’s not hard.

    I know it's been 40 minutes but Ramsey's pub is in forum casino opposite the Colosseum entrances, near the Numb bar / TR desk and food court. Follow signs to forum tower elevators. If you're looking at them, it's right beside you. Has a bunch of kegs stacked floor to ceiling in an artsy fashion.

    I had a very slow day at work, came home early and multi-deviced furiously. I found a combination of one way first class on american out (boooo) and Delta home (yaaaay!) for $900 with kinda shitty but doable time frames, but waiting to find out if I have company or not, aka, if I need to buy one or two of each....I mean, if peasant class is gonna be $666ea and another $120 in bags fees then bet your ass I'm I'm paying the extra $114 for first clASS! Once I have that answer I'm buying the tickets if available and the insurance thay will refund them if doc says no :beer:

    People watching mfers have zero conversational skills so they make fun of others. You should have asked them if they wanted any?

    Yeah some people are just ******bags. My friends and I had that at Marquee once with the next door table, just getting the bitchiness because they were so cool.

    Returned the douchiness favour and just paid for a few more bottles to cover their table and got the host to move them. We all gave them a little wave goodbye, worth it for the full on bitch faces

    Ok I "made friends" with those people before I left but it felt like they were laughing behind my back the whole time. I cussed excessively and they laughed in that fake way like “omg she thinks she’s cool!” bs.

    Meanwhile Melissa at the bar, and this other guy who’s name started with an R were fucking fantastic !!

    Now I’m in a cab on my way to MGM to see Bruce scream at us! I gotta charge my phone tho, it’s at 40% oops.

    They just played “The Evil that Men Do” at MGM - need to charge my phone and get to the arena!

    Met a fan who gave me one of his many Maiden pins, so so cool!

    First of all, glad to be along on another one of your trip reports. :headbang:
    As far as the d-bags... I have found, that in the age of social media, ppl just think they can judge out loud without consequence. I used to call it brave behind the keyboard but I feel like it is bleeding out into everyday life nowadays. It is regrettable and sad.
    In other news, I say FUCK THEM and live your best life girl! But I know I don't need to tell you that. Looking forward to more tales in this TR.

    OH my GOSH luck! I was worried when I ready your bumpy start/cat/anxiety post earlier and went straight to PM versus reading..... I LOVE that you hit this, especially on a trip/ that had a few stresses.... absolutely AMAZING, and I am so happy for you!

    I was scratching my head when I read this, as MANY of we female VMBers, of all ages, love our solo trips, it's a actually a bit rampant on here! But, I realized you're new, welcome to the board!!!

    You have much to learn about VMB, gals young grasshopper, but welcome to the board! :)

    Hahaha, if I know our Sonya, she might have been looking to see how hard it was to create one, then she realized how much fur would fly on rumor threads if she DID create one!

    Try and be kind and nice to everyone, but only give a crap about the opinion of the people you value/respect. I'm always shocked how many people can be turds out there. It looks like you just unfortunately encountered a vapid little clique.

    As my hubs and I like to say when we see/meet a first-class ass? "At least we're not married to them!" (As in we get a short annoyance, someone else will get years with the little gems.)

    Write them off as clickish knuckle-draggers, and don't give them another thought, you're in Vegas Baby, and you're one in a million!

    Just catching up with your trip report and loving every post. I fly solo almost every other time I go to Vegas......and I am one of those "older" ladies

    You are so friendly I am sure you won't go anywhere without finding someone interesting to talk to.

    Great hit on the tornadoes! Looks like I will be there at Thanksgiving too and would love to meet up for a drink. Really enjoyed @Sonya and your company watching fireworks and catching a late bite.

    Enjoy the rest of your trip and best of luck padding your bankroll for your next trip.

    That's bull crap!

    Starting to sound more and more like Thanksgiving is going to be lit like 4th of July! @luck.ofthe.draw you need to be there too! Make it happen! This TR has me excited again, and that's exciting. Also so badass with the $1000+ win on a nil budget. I'm sorry you have to sleep at Rio :poke:

    My phone died taking photos and videos.

    Take a shot every time Bruce wails “Screeaaam for me Vegassss!” And we all scream back.

    Mariah Carey’s Heartbreaker is playing and now it’s 90’s pop dance time :) (I’m a kid leave me alone, this is my music)

    Where was I. Oh yeah, Bruce Dickinson is in Vegas motherfuckers! He called us motherfuckers too, which means my term of endearment is a win :)

    I’m trying to charge my phone on this stupid slot machine so I can catch a ride home. Maaaaybe I’ll meet up with a VMBer, then I gotta crash before my flight tomorrow at like, 7:00a or some shit.

    Woooooo pics and more will be uploaded tomorrow!

    I wish I had more money haha but that $1k won earlier definitely helped. I played $200 ish more than that and should have fucking stopped lol.
